Custom made substrates
The collective name for all growing media which we provide is “substrate”. The majority of our substrates are the so-called potting soil mixtures. A potting mixture consist several raw materials and additives. Each raw material has unique physical- and chemical characteristics, which make the applicability for each raw material different. All raw materials are carefully selected by our purchase department and the incoming materials are under strict control of BVB Research. Thanks to long-term agreements with preferred suppliers, we are able to guarantee a consistent quality of these materials.
The base of a potting soil mixture consists of sphagnum peat, sod peat, peat and / or cocopeat. Other raw materials such as pumice, perlite, coconut fiber, bark, sand and clay can be added as well. Finally, lime and fertilizers will be added to reach the right pH- and EC level. Mixing is done by our modern production facilities with computerized systems.
